The First New Dallas Streetcar is Here.

Last Friday the first of 4 new Dallas streetcars was delivered to Dallas Area Rapid Transit. This car number 302 is the first one of it's kind delivered by the car builder Brookville Equipment Company. The car will be able to travel on track without over head wire using battery power. This is because the Houston street viaduct from down town Dallas to Oak Cliff which the new streetcar line travels over will not have overhead  wire (OCS) due to the historic nature of the bridge. The car has been introduced to the public and journalists and has been featured in several articles this week. We look forward to the success and great utilization of this new streetcar line in the future.

And here is a link to the Brookville Equipment Company website article on the new streetcars.
